  1. Thanks!
  2. Boat, rv and rec vehicles are the first things to fall out. Bellweather for the rest of the economy. In hard times, first thing you do is not buy toys.
  3. Where did you get the vents? Might try to add them to my factory bow and cockpit covers.
  4. Congrats. Very nice truck. I'm eyeballing a diesel for my next ride also.
  5. That was my experience when I was shopping. Honestly there didn't seem to be a ton of difference between the H2o and the ssi other than some bling. Same warranty, built the same, same hull (at least on the 21ft).
  6. Nice pic.
  7. I'd kinda second the h2o hate going on. im rather new to the forum and have noticed it too. Not to hijack the thread, but does anyone have any proof that the h2o's are bad boats? That they are shoddy in any way? OP: I've got the outboard version with the 150 Yamaha. It moves pretty good. Gps top speed has been 48mph so far with 17hrs on it. If I had it to do over again, I'd probably go with the 200hp option, but I haven't had any issues planing or towing a tube. Outboards are a bit more efficient than inboards, so I'd say get the highest hp motor you can.
  8. Let us know how it goes. I've contemplated the same thing, but mine is paid off which is nice.
  9. Beef up the suspension on your current truck. That will help. A nice set of airbags will make it tow better.
  10. Get the h2o with the outboard. That's my advice. Demo them and see which one you like better.
  11. I have a 21' h2o outboard. Just got back from the coast over the weekend. Our boat did just fine and I was complimented by the passengers (they have a sea ray and a center console) and others on how well it handled the water. We did take it out into the ocean about a 1/2 mile. I wanted to see how it handled. Waves were 2-4 with some whitecaps. That was fun for a bit, but we definitely got wet. Wouldn't recommend that. It handled the intercostal and bays just fine though. All what you're used to I guess.
  12. Good idea on adding the flap. I can probably add that myself.
  13. Carpet is cheaper and much easier to remove or replace. Just sayin.
  14. I have the 21' h2o ob. The bow and cockpit cover leak by the windshield on the bow cover. If you put it on and look from the inside, there is a small gap by the windshield that allows water to leak in and down the console. I could see that sitting for a while outside with the drain plug in and collecting water in the bilge. The bilge pump is connected straight to the battery, so the float should have kicked on even with the perko switch turned off. I would definitely check it to make sure it kicks on with the perko in the off position. Ridiculous they would let that happen, but honestly, they probably didn't know. Fyi, when I bought my boat it was sitting inside the showroom. Only downside to that was everyone climbing all over it. I also got the mooring cover with mine and store it with both covers on. It definitely keeps the water, bugs and cats out of it that way.
  15. All those smiles says it all.
